"The $800,000,000 of tho army fttnd should provide a minimum Increase of 3,000 planes, he said, adding It was hoped that orders placed on a large scale will "ma- Herlally reduce the unit cost and .actually provide many more ', planes."'

Highlights of President Roosevelt's national defense message: It Is equally sensational and un- rue to take the position that we must at once spend billions of additional money for building up our and, sea and air forces on the one hand, or to Insist that no 'urthor additions are necessary on :ho other. It has become necessary for ev- ji-y American to restudy present defense ngalnst the possibilities of >resont offense against Us, Careful examination of the most mperatlve present needs leads me o recommend the appropriation it this session of the congress, with as great speed as possible, of ap- •roxlmately X525,000,000, of which um approximately $210,000,000 would be actually spent from the treasury before tho end of tho "iseal year ending June 30, 1040. The survey indicates that of this sum aproxlmately $450,000,000 should be allocated for new needs of the army, $65,000,000 for new needs of the nacy, and $10,000,000 'or training of civilian air pilots. In co-operation with educational nstltutlons, it Is believed that the expenditure of $10,000,000 a year wll give primary (pilot) training o approximately 20,000 citizens. We are thinking In the terms of necessary defense and the conclusion is Inevitable that our ex- stlng forces ore so utterly inadequate that they must be immediately strengthened. It Is proposed that $800,000,000 be appropriated for the purchase of several types of airplanes for ho army. This should provide a minimum increase of 3,000 planes x x x Wo have a splendid asset In the quality of our manhood.

It would be economically unsound to provide In time of peace for all the modern equipment needed in a war emergency. But it would be nationally unsound not to provide the critical items of equipment which might be • needed for Immediate use, and not to provide for facilities for mass production in the event of war." hf Right-of-Way For Defense? Program WASHINGTON, Jan. 12.—(^Pi- Congressional leaders agreed today to- give right-of-way to a national defense program of spectacular proportions as soon as President Roosevelt submitted his recommendations. There was doubt whether the President's special message would be ready for presentation by noon, but its principal points were decided on earlier this week. , Well-informed legislators heard in advance that the $500,000,000 defense program would recommend thousands of planes for the army and hundreds for the navy, new air bases, stronger Panama Canal defenses, and gearing of Industry for mass production of munitions in an emergency, Army and navy proposals were on the President's desk when he advised congress a week ago that In a world of disorder from aggression "weapons of defense give the only safety." Since then he was urged by «omo advisors to ask initial funds for more than a score of new naval bases on the continent, in the Atlantic and far to the west In the Pacific. Guam Considered. Among the proposed sites waa the long demilitarized island of Guam, only 1,500 miles from Japan. Establishment there, of an air and submarine base, outflanking any Japanese advance to the south or west, would call for a basic decision on National policy In view of the resentment likely to be aroused In Tokyo, Mr, Roosevelt made It clear In his budget message last week that he would propose spacing the extraordinary ..defense -outlays over two years or more, with a! first-year expenditure of $210,000,000 In addition to the regular budget of $1,109,558,000 for the army and navy, ; Sources close to the administration reported the Chief Executive had decided definitely on these general recommendations: Air forces—orders for between 4,000 and 5,000 aircraft to be produced in the next 18 months, entailing a four-fold Increase In the aircraft industry's output. Additional orders in. the 1940-41 fiscal year would swell this number to 10,000 or more. Of the total only about 60 per cent would be first line combat planes the rest training, transport and observation craft. Recommendations by his advisers earmarked the bulk of the craft for the army. : To Triple Personnel, Air force personnel—A first- year addition of about 17,000 men to the army air corps, toward an ultimate tripling of th« present 20,000, Funds would be, asked to train, military. pilots, in addition to the 20,000 college youths to be given primary In* atruotlon annually and a ,larg«r number to be given aviation mechanical training. Weapons for army—Upwards ol 4100,000,000 for new anti-a,!rorafl and other artillery, tank* ' and seml-automatio . Hfles, T *toward meeting a deficiency estimated last year at $160,000,000.' Panama Canal — about $26,000,000, to strengthen Its defenses, In line with Secretary Woodrlng's reo- ommendatlon that the vital 'link between the Atlantic and Faolfjq "mu«t be made .impregnable.'* , Industry—A $80,000,000 inor«M«, would be fought in the present $3,0.00,000 n year for "educational" orders for muftiUoni to latteries • ITALIAN-BRITISH ' (Continued From Page One) ty admitted that a clear Idea of II Duce's View of Europe's problems and the way to solve them was all they expected to get out of the Prime Minister's appeasement Journey to Rome, Diplomats noted with Interest that II Duce has maintained direct diplomatic contact with his allies of the anti-Communist throe- power pact during the series of talks with the' British leader, which began yesterday and mny be ended with today's conference. An account of the conversations was understood to have been given to the German ambassador, Hans-Ocorg Viktor von Maoken- sen, when he called this morn- Ing on Count Galeazzo Clano, Italian foreign minister and participant In tho parleys. Yesterday II Duce hlmsel/ spent half an hour with the newly arrived ambassador of Japan, Toshlo Shlratori. Chamberlain and his foreign secretary, Vliscount Halifax, arrived at II Duco's office late In the afternoon for what British said would bo the last real talk of the visit. Tomorrow will be devoted to the British statesman's call at the Vatican, where Pope Plus will receive them in a private audience, and In a wlndup of social festivities. The Britons leave Saturday. Mussolini Presents Demands on Europe ROME, Jan. 1 2.—(/P)—Premier Mussolini presents to Prime Minister Chamberlain today his demands upon Europe, constituting In effect a definition of the "Jus- ice" which he sets as the prleo of peace and likely revolving about control of tho Mediterranean and colonial concessions. Mussolini laid down the policy of "peace founded on Justice" In a friendly toast at tho banquet he gave tho British minister last night. Chamberlain in an answering oast said the way was for a "just And peaceful solution of International difficulties by the method of negotiation." The two talked Informally for 90 minutes yesterday. They chat:ed again after the banquet. The formal conference today included, as did the previous discussions, Foreign Ministers Lord Halifax and Count Galeazzo Clano, Mussolini's son-in-law. Wreiiths Placed. Count Clano received Lord Hall- fax, Sir Alexander Codogan, British permanent undersecretary of torolgn affairs, and Sir Noel Charles, counsellor of the British embassy, an hour before the formal program started with a visit by Chamberlain and Viscount Hall- fax to leave wreaths at tho Pantheon of Italian Kings and tho Unknown Soldier's tomb. The presence of Sir Alexander was believed to indicate that tho preliminary talks dealt with Italian desire for concessions In French Africa and porhaps with tho Spanish war. Chamberlain's position in the ensuing formal parley was said to be that' of a listener, offering nothing until he hnd hoard Mussolini's demands, which diplomats exnootod would be considerable. The foreign ministers' conversation was understood to have served as background for more Important .talks later with the two premiers present. Reliable sources said no important decisions were reached. Diplomats said that the German ambassador, Hans-Georg Viktor Von Mackensen, visited Count Clnno after Lord Halifax' coll. He was believed to have Inquired and to have boon told that the Britons thus far had dlsmuss- ed. Japan Interested. Japanese Ambassador Shlratori Toshto was considered also likely to have made inquiries as the envoy of Italy's othe.r partner In the anti-communist triangle. Reports from London Indicated that one of Chamberlain's chief objects was to find out what steps the antl-communtst partners might take In 1939. It Is the fascist conviction that Italy either must dominate or be a prisoner in the Mediterranean, which was- Rome's own sea long years before Britain had need to run a life-line- through it. The two statesmen, in their toasts, affirmed past Italian and British . assertions , that the .sea was so vital to each that It could be made a bond of union .rather than the bone of contention. But Italy has indicated by her recent course that she feels this happy union can be achieved only by sacrifices from a third party, France, The outcome of the talks, therefore, depended largely on how much Mussolini could get Chamberlain to 'ask France to give, and how France responded .to his means .of appeasement. . Italian Princess HI. ROME, January 12.—(/P)—Authorities at the Royal palace today Informed diplomats making inquiries that Princess Mafalda, second daughter of King Vlttorla Emanuele and Queen Elena who is critically ill of pneumonia, was better. Nevertheless her illness and unconfirmed rumors of .her death cast a cloud over'Italy's official entertainment of British GERMANY WARNS NEW DRIVE AGAINST JEffSMAY COME BERLIN, Jan. 12.—(fl>-The semi, official mouthpiece of the .German foreign office warned the Nether- ands today that alleged shots at German officials' homes in Amsterdam and Tho Hague might "severely affect" her otherwise carefully guarded neutrality. Angrily charging Jews with hav- _ng fired at Nazi buildings in The Netherlands, Germany earlier had warned that Jews In Germany would be made to suffer if the reported Incidents continued, Deutsche Dlplomatlsch-Polltlsche Korrospondenz, which speaks semi- officially for the foreign office, warned The Netherlands she would "have to consider earnestly whether her present liberal attitude and indulgence toward destructive Jewish Influence can still be tolerated if, as Just has been the case, t leads to endangering of accredited German representatives." BERLIN, Jan. 12.—</P>—Germany, angrily blaming Jews for rnlsterlous shots fired at Nazi buildings In the Netherlands, warned today that Jews In Germany would be made to suffer if the Incidents continued. Both the press and the propaganda ministry blamed Jews for shots allegedly fired at German consular officials in the Amsterdam consulate and at the office ot the Gorman legation secretary at the Hague. (The German minister . to the Netherlands called the incidents to the attention of the Dutch foreign minister In Amsterdam yesterday a thorough Investigation was promised.) Nazi newspapers let loose a scathing blast against International Jewry, warning of the dire fate awaiting their German co-re- llglonlsts If another attempt is made on tho life of Germans, DNB, official German news agency, said the German minister at tho Haguo had been Instructed to make "energetic representations" to the Netherlands government over the alleged attacks. INFORMAL PROGRAM FEATURED CIVITAN LUNCHEON SESSION Members of the Corslcana Clvltan Club met In regular weekly luncheon session Thursday noon at the Navarro Hotel for an Informal program. Entertainment on the program was furnished by two pupils of the Cook School of Dancing and Expression. Tho pupils presented by Miss Jewell Taylor were Linda Rose Dlckson and Joan Porter. The two little girls did a song and dance together and then e»ch gave Individual readings. In conclusion they sang and danced to the-tune of "Umbrella Man."

While the King entertained the visitors at • a quiet luncheon the Queen kept to her private apartments. Her inability to attend the luncheon caused women to be excluded from the guest list.

WPA FUNDS (Continued From Page One) , months starting Feb. 1. The majority said $725,000,000 would bring WPA employment S.jvtn to an average of 2,337,049 per month. Early Poftsage Bo Sought, The appropriations committee approved the slash In the proposed WPA fund shortly before tho bill was brought to the houce floor for debate. Leaders had agreed to end the debate tomorrow afternoon and to a', -ipt "as- sage by tmorrow night. In recommending a clause which would nullify, In effect, a Presidential order to blanket WPA administrative employes Into civil service Feb. 1, the committee said WPA wns a temporary agency. The administrative personnel— upwards of 35,000 Individuals—the committee said also should be Considered temporary workers. With reference to recovery, the committo noted that President Roosevelt In messages to congress had commented on substantial luslnes and Indutrlal Improvement Furthermore, it said, Col F. C. Harrington, WPA administrator, had stated that there had been "rapid and extensive" recovery since last July and that the number of workers In industry and agriculture had Increased by more that 1,000,000 In the last six months, Private Employment. Harrington, it said, also stated that a further Increase of 1,500,000 In private employment was anticipated by Juno 30. Re-employment on the outside is definitely on the upward trend and the committee can see no Justification for anticipating that there will be a need by the end of June, 1939, 12 months after the recession was reversed and the upward trend started, to continue to employ on Works Progress administration projects approximately 1,200,000 more persons than when the recession started back in tho autumn of 1937" WPA rolls, the committee said should be purged of mallgcrcrs and many others who manage to remain on tho rolls continuously. It held that such purging should' effect a reduction and make room for more eligible persons. It said testimony on th« bill Indicated about 10 per cent of those now on WPA have been there since the agency's Inception. There also are many unemploy- ables on WPA who should be cared for by established relief agencies financed by other than federal funds, the committee asserted, The committee said it felt the president's position that congress might desire to legislate to divorce relief from politics was sound. .Corrective Measures Corrective measures, it added, should be considered either by a different committee or deferred for consideration by the appropriations committee when it takes up tho relief approriatlon for the year beginning July 1. The $725,000,000, the committee suggested, could be so spread out as to provide for 2,800,000 WPA workers in February, 2,600,OC" in March, 2,400,000 In April, 2,200,000 In May and 2,000,0000 In June. By comparison, the administration contemplated using $875,000,000 for 3,000,000 Jobs In February and March; 2,875,000 In April; 2,- 77g,000 In May and 2,700,000 in June. Further backing up its action in trimming the administration-suggested figure, the committee said that at no time since V/PA was started In 1935 had expenditures approached the total • Ich would bo available for the current year should a supplemental $875,000,000 be appropriated. Over Two Billions That amount, It saU, would bring the total available for the year to $2,227,350,272, compared with $1,478,858,500 in tho 1938 fiscal year; $1,899,069,166 in 1937 and $1,305,802,581 in 1936. An appropriations subcommittee early this week lopped $150,000,000 from the president's request, and administration lieutenants were not overly hopeful that the house would restore that amount. Democratic leaders, however, maneuvered the parliamentary situation to put each member on record for or against the $875,000,000 fund. They also insisted that .enough money be voted to operate WPA until June 30 rather than for a shorter period. Republican leaders were uncertain whether they could obtain the lupport of enough anti-administration democrats In the house to Dlock a five-month appropriation, 3Ut their demands for. prompt changes in relief policy paralleled plans of a number of democratic senators. Connally Comments WASHINGTON, .Jan. 12.—i Taking cognizance of reports that anti-lynchlng legislation would be Introduced again this year, Senator Connally (D-Tex) said today that opponents would "discuss it at length." Connally led the southern filibuster which shelved .the measure last session. Easy, convenient, Cheap - -Just Phone Your.

' 'I said of course they were entitled to the right of free speech and the right of assembly. "Civil liberties mean liberties for those we like and those we don't like or even detest." The witness, speaking In a low voice Into a battery of microphones, said that when the Nazi government -rose to power in Germany there was a question whether the ACLU "should give Its aid to those professing allegiance to the nazl regime." "In several cities nazi meetings were proposed," he continued. "I was quite clear about It—I said that so long as nazls or non-nazls claim their rights under the con- itltution It made no difference to the purposes of the union. "It doesn't matter whether the constitution is Invoked for ends like or ends I don't like, so long as those who Invoke It keep within the framework of the constitution," Frankfurter added that persons sympathizing with Italy's fascist government also .were en-, titled to all their constitutional rights. Must Be Freedom, 'There must be freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of assembly and freedom of worship as your conscience dictates," he declared. The nominee said that the ACLU had In some cases protested rulings of the National Labor relations board preventing employers from circularizing their amployes. He added, however, that ho had not been consulted in these cases. Frankfurter, testifying on his nomination for the supreme court said today he thought It would be "Improper" to express his personal views on matters affecting the high bench. The, liberal Harvard law professor, nominated to succeed the late Justice Benjamin Cardozo, read a brief statement before a senate judiciary subcommittee. Saying he had "taken tho liberty of putting on paper" his remarks, Frankfurter added: 'I of course do not wish to testify In support of my nomination." Considered Improper. Frankfurter said he considered It "improper" for a nominee to the court "to express his personal views on matters affecting the court." Frankfurter, speaking slowly and precisely, sat In front of the committee. He was flanked by Dean O. Aoheson, Washington attorney. He told the committee he did not believe "tho best Interests of the court would be helped" by statements from his regarding matters affecting the body. "It would not only be a bad taste, but inconsistent to the duties of the office," he continued, "for. a nominee to supplement his past record by present declarations." In his past writings, the witness added, he had fully outlined his views on constitutional and legal questions affecting the supreme court. Accepts Second Invitation, He said he was "very glad to accede to the committee's desire to have me appear." The Harvard law professor accepted the group's second Invitation to testify after having declined the first. He left his Massachusetts home last night. Frankfurter had asked Dean O. Acheson, Washington lawyer, to represent his Interests here. Acheson a former student of the appointee, conferred with the committee In closed session late yesterday after several witnesses had objected vigorously to the nomination. The testimony brought a denunciation of one witness by Senator Borah (R-Idaho), who thundered ils objections to ' discussion of frankfurter's Jewish birth. "You are raising the same ques- ton that has drenched Burope in )!ood," shouted Borah, half-rising n his seat, after Allen Zoll of New Tork had contended that Frank- urter's confirmation would arouse .ntl-semitlsm In America. Chairman Neely (D-WVA) said t the close of yesterday's session hat all persons had testified who lad asked to oppose the appointment. These witnesses had con- ended that Frankfurter was link- d directly with communist, revo- utlonary and subversive groups. Nominees Are Confirmed.
